We believe it is important for companies and individuals who are experiencing financial difficulties, to not only immediately seek legal advice but also advise from their accountant and financial advisor. It is critical that when suffering financial hardship, early action is taken to avoid or limit the consequences that may flow to a company (being wound up) or an individual (becoming bankrupt). If corporate insolvency or personal bankruptcy is unavoidable, it is also critical that that party understands their rights and obligations that will result.
